I do :

cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

and then I get this error.

I used :

emerge --depclean

&

eclean distfiles --deep

I think the latter deleted something important...how do i fix this ? should I re-emerge the source ?

/usr/src/linux points to my current kernel's source .. but i get this error..

Are your sources installed e.g gentoo-sources?

You can post what /usr/src/linux contains with ls?

Something is wrong in your folder Makefile is missing.
Save your .config and try to re-emerge your kernel

I *think* that you've unmerged the sources.
Maybe forgot to update the symlink to newer sources?

how do I re-emerge my kernel ? like this :

emerge --ask sys-kernel/gentoo-sources
?

symlink is there...it is pointing to the current kernel source..

Probably with a depclean your kernel source (4.19.27) has been removed.
This kernel version is out of tree then best solution is upgrade to 4.19.57

lets say that you install Gentoo for the first time with the kernel that has a default .config(you don't touch anything in .config)...lets call that kernel1

and lets say you install Gentoo with a kernel0 and use the default .config(again, not touching .config), and the upgrade it to kernel1 using "make olddefconfig" to generate a new .config.

then are the .config files identical in both scenarios ?

in other words, the defaults that "make olddefconfig" generates are the same defaults that the new kernel comes with ... Am I right ?

make olddefconfig read current .config in folder and active new symbols to their default value.

$ cd /usr/src/linux && make help

  make SPHINX_CONF={conf-file} [target] use *additional* sphinx-build
  configuration. This is e.g. useful to build with nit-picking config.

  Default location for the generated documents is Documentation/output

  install      - Install kernel using

  make O=dir [targets] Locate all output files in "dir", including .config
  make C=1   [targets] Check re-compiled c source with $CHECK (sparse by default)
  make C=2   [targets] Force check of all c source with $CHECK
  make RECORDMCOUNT_WARN=1 [targets] Warn about ignored mcount sections
  make W=n   [targets] Enable extra gcc checks, n=1,2,3 where
                1: warnings which may be relevant and do not occur too often
                2: warnings which occur quite often but may still be relevant

When I first installed Gentoo, I was getting a flash right at the beginning of kernel messages during boot.

I fixed it by adding i915.fastboot=1 to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=

Now after this kernel upgrade, I am getting a similar flash during boot..Anyway to fix it ?

I don't know this problem, but if you have set GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT this isn't changed with new kernel
